    Chromium browser

    I just came across this browser.
    I downloaded it a few hours ago, and been playing with it since.
    Faster then Firefox, with less features...

    So far I'm liking it.

    Chrome will license H264 codec so you can watch H264 in linux. Firefox is a no show on H264
    here is a discussion where he does not understand the need for Iron when there is Chromium.

    I still don't think anyone is understanding what I'm saying. I'm not talking about IRON vs.CHROME -- I'm talking about IRON vs. CHROMIUM.

    If Iron is exactly the same thing as CHROMIUM, then why does Iron even exist?

    On the other hand, if there ARE differences between Iron and CHROMIUM, then why doesn't the Iron Web site mention them?

    I hope that this third explanation finally makes clear what I was apparently and inexplicably unable to explain sufficiently in both my first and second tries.

    The need for Iron is simple. Chromium and chrome make about 20 attempts to contact outside servers when you start them up. Many people feel that that is spyware. Iron has removed the reporting to Google what is done on the browser.

    Iron has it's uses for the privacy worried.

    I love Chrome as well, especially with YouTube moving to HTML5 video and it being the only browser that will support the correct format.

    Google ask if you want to be apart of the improvement team, and send them crash reports, and usage statistics. You can say no to that you know?
